EA will be showing Battlefield 3, Alice: Madness Returns, Shadows of the Damned, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Crysis 2, Battlefield: Play4Free, Gatling Gears, The Fancy Pants Adventures and more. The main reveal will be Battlefield 3, coverage of which is embargoed until Wednesday, March 2 at 6.00am PST (that’s 9.00am EST, 2.00pm GMT and 3.00pm CET), with other editorial being released in a staggered fashion over the following week.

Turdshovler! Fruitpicker! Coalminer!
 
That adds a whole day to the waiting and yearning for the GDC Battlefield 3 reveal.
 
And yeah - those who own what slaves wouldn't do without some proper whipping - you are why Democracy doesn't work!

On a sidenote - I'm supercurious how well Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning will show.
 
It has been described as 'Elder Scrolls meets God of War' - even got the same lead producer as Oblivion.

Yeah, looking forward to seeing Battlefield 3 and Alice: Madness Returns.  
 
GDC should be fun, even if I'm not there!

For the more technical/developer related stuff from GDC...

 
 
...here's a copy 'n paste from the Battlefield Blog about their presentations on Frostbite 2 and BF3.
 
 

DICE is going big with Battlefield 3 at this year's Game Developers Conference. On March 01, attendees will be able to feel the battlefield like never before. Stay tuned on March 02 as online coverage from this event will start to air.

 

Not content with demoing our next installment in the Battlefield series, we will also give multiple in-depth talks on the technology behind Battlefield 3, our new game engine Frostbite 2. If you are attending GDC, pop by for the following talks from our awesome Frostbite team here at DICE. After GDC is over, these talks will be made available at publications.dice.se. Hope to see you at the show!

Guess so.
 
That stuff is tech talks from devs for devs. That's what GDC is for. Boasting about your developer-ninja-skills.
 
DICE will make those presentations available on  publications.dice.se.
